  1. I've started making incense sticks and have a couple questions.... 1. Any recommendations for good punk sticks? So far, I've tested punks from Wellington (do not like,) The Parfumerie on Etsy (these are ok, the wood pulp breaks off easily though), and The Plant Guru (I like these, the pulp is a wood powder, but they look very blotchy after drying for some reason.). 2. I feel like no matter what punk stick & fragrance oil I use, they are not holding scent as well as I'd like. When burning, I smell little of the fragrance. What am I doing wrong? I soak the punk sticks in DPG/fragrance oil mixture (1:1 ratio for scent strength) for 24 hours. I then let the sticks naturally dry outside for 1-2 days. Thanks in advance! 🙂
  2. I have a full 2oz bottle of Nights Watch from Muddy if anyone wants it. 😄 I had originally put it in my cart & then took it out before placing my order for the Palo Santo. Yes, I double checked the emailed receipt.. nope, not there lol. 🤷‍♀️
  3. I'm real bad about compulsive oil ordering lol. 😝 If you still haven't placed an order by the time I get it, I'd be more than happy to send you a sample! 🙂
  4. I just ordered it! 😄
  5. I was sooo eyeballing the Palo Santo from Muddy last night!😍 Based on the notes, it's appears VERY similar (if not a dupe) to the fragrance, Palo Santo by Carner Barcelona, you can compare the notes at Fragrantica.
  6. At this point, I think I'm just going to have to accept the fact that if I want to purchase oils from WSP, it's a very good possibility that I'll have to wait a while for them. I'll need to reorder earlier than usual in hopes that I don't run out. Here's to hoping my recent order ships next week. As for slow shipping in general, I simply don't understand how any company can deem that acceptable or believe that it should be tolerated. Your customers have paid you their hard earned money for a product you are selling. Once you receive their payment, that product is now THEIRS, so get it to them asap!
  7. You guys are making me feel a little better. 🙂 Not everyone, I've actually had great luck with shipping this whole month from various companies. I placed 4 other orders on the same day (4/18) that I placed my order with WSP and 3 more orders after (4/20 & 4/22).) I have already received 3 of those orders and the other 4 are currently in transit to me. I just revisited their site and I do the see the 6-8 day lead time at the top of the page. Today marks 5 business days, so hopefully it'll go out soon.
  8. So I placed my first order with WSP on 4/18 (still hasn't shipped out😐) and was looking over their Yelp reviews tonight and the majority of them are negative (1-2 stars.) The main trend seems to be extremely slow shipping (some reviewers were talking weeks) and awful customer service. Many say that if you reach out to them with an issue or concern, they are very rude and simply deactivate your account. Reviews elsewhere are just as bad. However, I know many of you here order from them quite a bit. I already know that I like the oils I purchased, as I got samples from a friend first, so I'd like to continuing buying these particular oils from WSP. But now, I'm worried.😕
  9. Muddy Soap's Nights Watch sound a bit similar to Winterfell from WSP. I wonder how they would compare. I have and love Winterfell, definitely recommend it! If you've ever smelled Bonfire Bliss from RE, that's what Winterfell reminds me of, only with a toned down cedar note and more smoky woods.
  10. Unfortunately, I haven't found an oud scent that I like. I'm thinking it may just be too "medicinal" to my nose.
  11. Only 3??😛 Indigo (I've been ordering from Indigo for many years, dating back to when Dawn & her hubby started on Etsy. Customer service is always on point, pricing & shipping are pretty dang good if you ask me, and I have never, not once, had an issue with my orders. Indigo will always a top pick for me.) The Flaming Candle (I only started purchasing from TFC a few months ago and I am loving many of their oils.) Save On Scents (I really like the wide range of oils from SOS. Sooo many to choose from!)
  12. Thank you everyone for your suggestions, I appreciate them all! 😊
  13. You're very welcome. 😊
  14. Ones I have, had, or sampled from TCS that I can recall off the top of my head... *I copied the notes from various sites. Tom Ford Black Orchid (Unisex) Type - Oil strength-Strong. This is a pretty popular fragrance. Something about this dark fragrance intrigues me, I find I really enjoy smelling it. Notes: Top notes are French jasmine, black truffle, ylang-ylang, black currant, and effervescent citrus. In the floral-spicy heart, dwells Tom Ford's black orchid, more imaginary than real, and the base combines woodsy notes (patchouli and sandalwood), dark chocolate, incense, amber, vetiver, vanilla, and balsam. Aquolina Blue Sugar (Men) Type - Oil strength-Strong. I love this fragrance. To me, this is a dark, sweet fragrance that leans masculine, but could easily be unisex. If sweet cotton candy could be manly, it would be Blue Sugar. Notes: Top notes are mandarin orange and bergamot; middle notes are coriander, patchouli, lavender, licorice and cotton candy; base notes are tonka bean, star anise and cedar. Black Butter (Unisex) - Oil Strength-Moderate to Strong. My boyfriend really likes this one. To me, this is a pleasing fragrance that leans more masculine, with just a hint of sweetness and a sexy edginess about it. Although TCS does not list the notes for Black Butter, I found them at Scent Aroma Oils. Notes: Hints of buttery mango and vanilla. It's made from Burnt sugar and sandalwood mingled with notes of patchouli and licorice and vanilla. Baccarat Rouge 540 (Unisex) Type - Oil Strength-Weak I love this fragrance, but not TCS's version of it, as I found it very weak and smelling more like Ariana Grande's Cloud than BR540. While BR540 is unisex, some claim it does lean a bit more feminine. I have not yet tried purchasing it elsewhere. Notes: Top notes are jasmine and saffron; middle notes are amberwood and ambergris; base notes are fir resin and cedar. Tom Ford Sahara Noir (Unisex) Type - Oil Strength-Weak to Moderate. To me, this a dry, incensy, desert-like fragrance. I envision sand dunes and incense. I like it. Notes: Frankincense, cistus essence, bitter orange, Jordanian calamus (an oasis sweet grass), cypress, cinnamon, papyrus extract, jasmine, beeswax absolute, amber, ambreinol, benzoin, vanilla, cedar, agarwood, and balsam. Antonio Banderas Seduction In Black (Men) Type - Oil Strength-Strong One of my boyfriend's favorites. Dark and clean at the same time. Notes: Top notes of blackcurrant and bergamot. Heart notes turn up the heat with the spiced collection of nutmeg, cardamom and coriander. The base notes conclude with musk, Virginia cedar, amber and tonka bean. Tom Ford Velvet Orchid (Women) Type - Oil Strength-Strong Even though this is marketed to women, I believe it can easily be unisex. Reminds me of a softer version of Black Orchid. Notes: Bergamot, mandarin, honey, vanilla, orange blossom, rose, jasmine, narcissus, magnolia, Cattleya leopoldii orchid, heliotrope, rum, suede, labdanum, sandalwood, and myrrh. Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb (Men) Type - Oil Strength-Moderate A popular fragrance. Spicy and clean, however, less spicy than I had imagined, judging by the notes. Notes: Chili, saffron, leather, tobacco, vetiver, bergamot, grapefruit, elemi and pink pepper. Tom Ford Noir de Noir (Unisex) Type - Oil Strength-Moderate I haven't yet decided if I personally like it or not lol. I think it leans a bit more masculine, mature even. Notes: Black rose, Patchouli, Black truffle, Vanilla, Oud, Saffron, Oakmoss, Floral notes. Dragon's Blood - Oil Strength-Strong I, personally, don't like TCS's Dragon's Blood at all. I find it way too fresh, citrusy and floral, as opposed to the deep, earthy resinous I am accustomed to. Notes: I have no idea. Jo Malone Myrrh & Tonka (Unisex) Type - Oil Strength-Weak I really like this fragrance, it's soft and incensy, but the sample I purchased from TCS was weak imo. I'd like to purchase it elsewhere and compare. Notes: Top note is lavender; middle note is myrrh; base notes are vanilla, tonka bean and almond. Bvlgari (Bulgari) Black (Unisex) Type - Oil Strength-Strong Imo, this leans more masculine than unisex. Smells like cheap men's cologne to me. Notes: Top notes of rose, green tea and bergamot create a sweet aura that transitions to a heart of jasmine, sandalwood and cedar. I have sampled many more, but it's hard to remember my thoughts on them atm. I will definitely update my reply should I recall a particular fragrance. I know that Tom Ford fragrances are popular (and typically strong in oil form), so I'd suggest sampling a few of those, TCS has several. If there's a particular fragrance/s you're interested in and would like to see the notes & look over some reviews to determine popularity (higher chances of sell), look up the fragrance on Fragrantica. 🙂
